I was asking about the newer movies because maybe someone knows something about their copyright status

Thanks for checking the list ... looks like there are no hits this time :(

Yeah, I remember Video-Cellar often knew which movies had or didn't have notices in films made after 1963, but he's not as active right now. Can't blame you for hoping he'd chime in on the copyright status of those movies.

Why do you ask about U.S. films released after 1963? No renewal is needed for films such as A Thief in the Night (1972). It is up to you to look at the print and determine whether there is a valid copyright notice. If a U.S. film was released after 1963 and it has a valid notice, it is still under copyright. There is absolutely no point in checking for a renewal.


From the U.S. copyright site:

Works Originally Copyrighted Between January 1, 1964, and December 31,
1977: These works are protected by copyright for the 28-year original
term and the 67-year renewal term without the need of a first term or
a renewal registration.


Works created on or after January 1, 1978: For works created after its
effective date, the U.S. copyright law adopts the basic
"life-plus-seventy" system already in effect in most other countries.

In the early 90s the Berne implimentation act took away the need
to renew. So only items made before 1 Jan 1964 need to be
renewed.

1964-1977
Correct Notice
copyright could be forfeited if published without correct notice.
Registration is only required for evidentiary purposes in pursuing
damages actions against infringers

1978-1989
Notice
copyright could be forfeited if published without notice provided
steps were not taken to rectify the ommission within 5 years from
publication (this could include including notices in later editions or
registration.). If a notice was included registration is only required
for evidentiary purposes in pursuing damages actions against
infringers
